Overview

The year is 1791 and Lauren Renee Bouvier, formerly known as Ibo Atikah Mustafa, is still in North America—New Orleans to be exact—but she's all alone. She has just seen the murder of the man she loves. Someone's going to pay, not just for the death of Amir Bashir Jibril, the African warrior she ran away with to escape an arranged marriage, but for the death of all the men who died needlessly in the house on Bouvier Hill. They were shot down like dogs for murders they did not commit.

Revenge can be a costly thing. Fortunately, she has plenty of money from Beaumont Bouvier, who purchased her as a favor to the trusted friend who captured her in Nigeria. Beaumont Bouvier is also the man who set her free. She is now being seduced—not by a man, but by freedom, money, and the incredible amount of power she's amassing. Will she be able to carry out her murderous plans? Or will she become so enamored by wealth and influence that she abandons her African heritage to embrace the American Dream?

    Excellent Historical Glimpse

    Little Black Girl 5 was a page turner. I like how the author started the book off by summarizing the details of the last book. LBGL5 starts off right where book 4 ends and keeps the reader up to par. I can say this historical fiction story is more for entertainment, but still the bases of history gives the reader a glimpse of the times in the 1700's. The story was fast moving and the chapters will keep u turning the pages. One could read books 4-5 first then read books 1-3, but either way the author keeps the readers intrigue for more. Part 5 sequel was great. I can honestly say, Mr. Keith Lee Johnson you have found a new nitch in writing and that's historical fiction. Excellent sequel and looking for more of the historical fiction writings. An excellent job well done!!

    Great

    Very enjoyable and somewhat educational. It makes me want to go and do research on my roots to find out WHY to a lot of unanswered questions in my family. Waiting on a movie.

    A Fallen Fan

    Last year I stumbled upon this series and was interested due to the fact that the story takes place in New Orleans around the 50's. I was so taken with the fast paced action and drama throughout the novels that I read all four of them in the span of a week! I was equally excited when number 5 was released. However, I was so disappointed the author spent another 90+ chapters on the same ancestor (Lauren Bouvier). Though, Lauren's story was thrilling in number 4, this one fell by the wayside. For starters the plot was UNDER developed and the story was POORLY written.I would have preferred the author to stop at Johnny Wise (the main character in the previous 3) rather than attempting to create this lackluster prequel.Needless to say, the story was pointless and some considerable time should have been allowed in order to produce something worth reading.I rarely say this, but don't buy this book. I recommend the first 3 even the 4th, but "Little Black Girl Lost 5" was one of the worst books I have EVER read!

    Little Black Girl Lost 5; may she remain losted

    I agree with the earlier reviewer, I was very disappointed with this book. The four earlier books were fast pace, visual reads, this seems like the author did not invest the time or effort to give us the type of intellectual read we have come to expect from him. Next time please take your time and do the research.
